MissMom:  I've seen rolls of those at AC Moore...  I'm not really sure how much they are, but I know they're sold in the bead aisle.

Edit:   I also saw a chain in Home Depot yesterday, it was designed to be used as a lamp pull, so the beads are a little bigger, and it was gold...   I think it was $4.99 for 12 feet, but don't quote me on that.

It's late, and I've been wondering...  How I can stay awake so long and miss so much...

I was just wondering how I would make paper beads waterproof (Glue doesn't work!)
Here's a picture if you need to see what I'm talking about. http://www.kid-at-art.com/icons/necklace.gif Mine are a bit different since they are thinner and I'm using comic strip pictures.

i never made mine with comic books, i always made them with wallpaper scraps, but i found that if you put a coat of glue or modpodge on them when they're done and then after that is dry coat them with polycrylic they are pretty well protected.  i don't know if i would say waterproof as i never tried dunking them, but i did use them to make jewelry for dogs and they held up great.  Grin

I did use glue on mine and then I took one and stuck it in the water for about 30 seconds or so and kept pushing it under the water with a paintbrush and then when I took it out it was all gooey and then it dried cloudy (The glue) So I might look for some modpoge or something similar and use that. Thanks anyways!!! Your help is muchly apreciated!  Smiley

I had a kit that made necklaces just like this one in the 80s!

It included what was basically little pieces of clear tubing (the kind you see with fish tanks).  I think it had around a 1/8" to 1/4" diameter maybe?  Anyway, you just rolled up the magazine/whatever paper and stuck it inside, and then threaded the string through that.  

Not sure if it really "waterproofs" but it makes the necklace pretty durable.

CarrieVision, thats a really neat idea. Thanks!!! I doubt it would waterproof them but oh well...its a great idea anyway. I think I might try that if I can find the tubing in my town.

I'm not sure where this goes, so it's going here. lol.

Does anyone know how to make beads from wrapping paper or ribbon or something like that?  Like, what do you use to make the center hollow?

I saw that.. I just am not sure how you make sure they're hollow... Do you just roll them so there's an opening down the center or do you wrap them around something?  I'm not seeing where it says.
